Salahi Makes Gubernatorial Campaign Stop in Charlottesville

Posted: Updated:

The accused White House party crasher who is running for Virginia Governor is campaigning across the commonwealth. Tareq Salahi stopped in Charlottesville on his "Crash the Vote" listening tour Wednesday.

The former Real Housewives reality TV star is in the race for the republican nomination. Salahi fears over-regulation is killing Virginia businesses and he supports public-private partnerships to create jobs.

Salahi also calls republican challenger Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli "polarizing."

"He's an extremist and a bully. He bullies citizens, businesses. He has that reputation. I mean, he sued the University of Virginia. He basically sued Thomas Jefferson, one of our founding fathers. This is not a man who should be leading the Commonwealth of Virginia," said Salahi.

Salahi hopes to overcome the record of his personal life antics, which played out in the tabloids, by meeting voters across Virginia one-on-one.
